Perched on the Première Côte, just above the town of Vouvray, Clos du Bourg is a monopole and generally regarded as the greatest of the three Huet single vineyards. It has been farmed by the domaine since 1953 and was purchased in 1963. Arguably the region’s greatest vineyard, Clos du Bourg makes some of Europe's most powerful, thrilling and long-lived white wines. With only one metre of topsoil over solid limestone, the vines immediately tap into the mineral resources underfoot. The warmth of the site, combined with the mineral complexion of the soils, results in rich, long-lived wines that seem to effortlessly combine intense, charged minerality with generous texture and concentration.

Reviews

“Just 650 bottles of the 2022 Clos du Bourg Premiere Trie Moelleux were made, and it is sweet, gentle and round. It fills the mouth with its sweet caress, exuding pure flavors of toffee apple, caramelized pear and pineapple. While sweet, it is less unctuous than you'd expect from many sweet wines from warmer sites due to the climate and soils, bringing a sense of cleanness and fine texture on the finish. That said, the lower acidity of this year means it's not quite as long and linear. A recent bottle of 2003 with similarly low acidity aged well, so I expect the same here. (105g/L).”
